I know site speed is import. But just how much. Should I speed a week improving the speed or adding more content ?
I have some documentation pages which are written using gitbook which has been easy to get going. But the lighthouse score is bad, getting ~30 for performance on mobile. Chrome first load is ~0.5 seconds, 6 seconds to finish.
I could convert it to a jekyll static site with markdown and github pages like my blog. Which is all loaded in ~0.2 seconds and scores >95.
It seems like annoying work to do. As an engineer I'll be proud of how much faster it is, but as a founder I know customers don't care, at least consciously. But most of my new visitors do come from search.
Im interested in your thoughts, thanks.
